Magic Affair

Magic Affair is a German dance group. The band originally consisted of the duo, the lead singer Franca Morgano and the American rapper A.K.-S.W.I.F.T. (Burnell Keith Herring). They were founded and produced by Mike Stabb.

Magic Affair were founded as a Mysterious Art spin-off and produced by Mike Stabb, a band where Stabb himself was a member.

The original band members of Magic Affair are the lead singer Franca Morgano and the rapper A.K.-S.W.I.F.T. (Burnell Keith Herring, born in 1969 in Chicago). The group's first single Omen III has been first introduced and released in 1993 under the shortened artist name M.A., which initial letters refers to both, the originated band name Mysterious Art and the upcoming spin-off band name Magic Affair.

 Also the singles' name "Omen III" and the debut album title Omen (The Story Continues...) are references to Mysterious Art's 1989er debut album "Omen - The Story" and its first two hit single releases "Das Omen (Teil 1)" and "Carma (Omen 2)". "Omen III" achieved success in Europe and worldwide, reaching #1 in the German Single chart and sold gold and platinum in Germany and Austria, and peaked #17 in the UK Singles Chart.

 "Omen III" was followed in 1994 by the debut studio album Omen (The Story Continues...) and the three singles "Give Me All Your Love", "In the Middle of the Night", and "Fire", which peaked #6, #16 and #20 in the German single chart respectively.

 Due to a dispute between Herring and Morgano, who wouldn't bear his macho temper, Herring was briefly replaced by rapper Alfonso Daniel Morgan. Because of no success and no material been released, Herring soon returned a few months later. That's a reason why Morgan has never been officially recognized as a former Magic Affair member.
